Service Break Experience (SBE) Program

This campaign ended on June 30, 2020, but you can still make a gift to St. Edward's University by clicking here!

Whether we’re building a home for someone in need or tutoring a child, Hilltoppers know that “the farther we go in giving, the more we stand to receive.” (Constitutions of the Congregation of Holy Cross).

Likewise, when you give for Campus Ministry’s Service Break Experience (SBE) program, you keep participation costs low for students and create social change, one life at a time.

Give today and your donation, no matter how much, will:
    - keep participation costs within reach for more than 130 students
    - provide over 12,000 hours of service to nonprofits
    - teach tomorrow’s leaders how to respond positively to issues of social and financial justice

Will you advance the Holy Cross mission with a gift today?


The Alternative Spring Break portion of the 2019-2020 SBE program has been canceled due to health and safety concerns related to travel amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, but your support still matters. Why? Because Campus Ministry’s Service Break Experience program has grown a lot over the years.

SBE now provides year-round opportunities for students to deepen their understanding of the four pillars of community, justice, simplicity and spirituality:
    - 1 Winter Break
    - 10 Alternative Spring Breaks**
    - 5 International Immersions
    - 1 Summer of Service

** Though students won’t be traveling this spring, they have spent months participating in group discussions and guided activities to prepare for their Alternative Spring Break.

Your gift today will even help Campus Ministry to mitigate the financial impact of travel cancellations, including recovery of the university’s travel and lodging investments, and our ability to still support our partners worldwide.

Help us stay strong with a gift to the SBE program today!
